Well it's not a full article or anything like that, but nice to see. Latest issue of Motorcyclist magazine has a 250cc shootout. Following the shootout is an article titled LITTLE GREEN STEPPING STONES, here is an excerpt: "Nearly every roadracing club in America has a 250cc production class, but no region has embraced the Ninja like the Pacific Northwest, where starts see bikes gidded six rows deep. The Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Association, Oregon Raceway Park, the Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association and the Westwood Motorcycle Racing Club in British Columbia all have their own "Cheapskate Cups". OMRRA is scheduled to run no fewer than 16 races this year, and the three American clubs have banded together to create a six-race Northwest Ninja 250 Cup."
